Outside the auditorium, Milton is sitting in the stairwell. I guess he's hoping for a little of what came Peter Nelson's way. The Proposition Fairy comes out and tells him he's missing the show. "I'm being a good escort," he says, although why I don't know. Then he's all, "I keep thinking the next practical joke is on me." The Proposition Fairy says, "Why? Is it a crime to like you?" Milton says that's what he tells people. The Proposition Fairy says, "I think you're cute. And if you like, I'll go up there onstage and say so." He says that won't be necessary. She pecks him on the cheek, and says, "Well, how about that?" Whoa. In about five minutes she'll be The Sex Position Fairy.
Inside the auditorium, Harvey is performing "If I Were a Rich Man" to raucous cheers. Now, anyone who knows Fyvush Finkel's schtick knows that this kind of thing is what he does best. He's a perfect Tevye, and he sings great, and totally sells the song, which makes to hard to buy that ALL of the students are just making fun of him. Then again, if he were my history teacher, this spectacle might be hilarious for me, too. In the audience, Coach Kevin says, "Where's your gun when you need it?" Harry says that that's funny, but he means, like, the opposite. Lauren says she thinks he's good, and that "this isn't his audience. His demographic is more..." "Dead?" says Kevin. Like, ha ha. Not. Anyway, the song ends, and a flicker of doubt crosses Harvey's face during the ovations; he seems to get the joke. Also, is that an actual Fiddler On The Roof set behind him? For a charity show, they seem to have spent an awful lot of money on this.
The Sanctum Stevenorium. "What do you mean, 'a sexual favor'?" says Mr. Blow-lita. This is an attempt to make us think the scene is starting after the information we already have has been imparted to new characters. But it's not, because Steve says, "In exchange for his withdrawal from the race, and the pledge of his votes, she tendered oral copulation." Blank stares from the Blow-lita family. Then Mrs. Blow-lita says, "If you're talking about what I think you are, I assure you, Susan doesn't even know what that is." You do, though, I'm guessing, because Mr. Blow-lita looks extremely relaxed. Anyhow, Steven is all, "Under the circumstances, I feel it's best to effect a transfer to another school. For Susan's own protection." Someone in the forums mentioned that it's not fair that Susan is the one transferred, while Peter Nelson gets to stay. I think they transfer Susan because the scheme was her idea, and she was the impetus behind fixing the election...but given what Steven just said, I'm not so sure. Her protection from what? Her own tendency to tender tenderness? Mr. Blow-lita says, "Susan? Did you...?" "She does not know what that is!" Mrs. Blow-lita says again.
